Ibanez SB70 Electric Guitar
Custom Made Electric Guitar by Ibanez
Ibanez Studio Blazer 70
1982 Vintage Rare Ibanez SB70
The Ibanez SB70 (Ibanez Studio Blazer 70) is an unusual and seemingly rare guitar from 1982. Legend has it that Ibanez was using up spare Blazer necks and adding them to Studio bodies. Rumour has it that only 300 were made, resulting in the rather amusing nickname of 'The Spartan' and it is true that it's simple, austere, basic even, but effective, very very effective. When these turn up for sale they often have evident signs of heavy use and an active life! A musical instrument should be played rather than be an ornament and you can tell from the state these guitars are normally in that they have been loved and used!
It is a no-frills guitar, but where often guitar manufacturers will choose hardware/pickups as an area that can apply cost control, this is not the case with the SB70. The pair of Dimarzio humbuckers with the tapping microswitch gives a very decent choice of tones. It's an allrounder - you can play clean, jazz, blues, screaming distortion and the guitar acquits itself very well indeed.
This is a fantastic guitar which still has the original SureGrip knobs (x3) and original 70's pups Jazzer or shredder. You will love the tonal values of this axe.
